Who knew Bon Jovi could make playoff baseball so cool?
Very funny bloopers from that here (featuring Joba and Johnny D!).
I’m psyched for October ball. Are you?
And who doesn’t love predictions? Their pointless, stupid and can fill hours of time as you debate them away (I sound like my wife discussing sports other then baseball). No one remembers your picks when the time comes (unless of course you were somehow spot on).
With that in mind we here by offer our playoff predictions for the 2008 Major League Baseball Posteason. And yes, you’ll see this post again if we’re remotely close (it could be deleted if things go badly)
You can also enter your picks and win some great stuff here at mussinahof.com like a signed Mussina card and a chance to write your own article about anything you choose concerning Mussina, the HOF, baseball or the Yankees. You do the writing, we’ll publish it.
The contest, which is open to anybody (but just one entry per person), is as follows:
1 point for picking the winner of a series (2 in the world series)
2 points if you pick the winner and the number of games (3 in the World Series)
2 points if you pick the AL and/or the NLCS MVP (3 for the World Series MVP)
We also reserve the right to pick a humorous solution to a tiebreaker.
Phillies over Brewers (in 4)
Cubs over Dodgers (in 5)
Cubs over Phillies (in 6)
NLCS MVP – Rich Harden
Angels over Red Sox (in 3)
White Sox over Rays (in 4)
Angels over Twins White Sox(in 5)
ALCS MVP – Vlad
I really want to see the Cubs win, because let’s face it, they deserve one and it’d make a great story. However, the Angels have 4 great starters, a strong bullpen and very good 3-5 hitters. If the Angel offense does go cold, which wouldn’t surprise me, the Cubs will have a legitimate shot. But I’m not counting on that.
Angels over Cubs (in 6)
World Series MVP – Mark Teixeira
Post your predictions in the comments and we’ll give a signed Mussina card to the winner along with a chance to write an article for the site about whatever Mussina, HOF, baseball or Yankee topic you desire.
Please remember to provide your email address for we can contact you later should you win. Contest closes at 5pm on Thursday October 2nd.
BTW, Moose can add one more stat to his career line – domination of baseball-reference. (And if anyone knows those sponsers let us know, we want in)
